always see windsurfers in the ads for Jamaica. But if you have
ever looked for a windsurfing location in Jamaica that offers
you quality equipment and fellow windsurfers, you didn't find
one, right? That's because it was not available until ... NOW!
Yes, lot's of places have a couple of old long boards available
in their all inclusive packages, but they are not set up to
be a windsurfing vacation spot. Well, Jamaica Sports Vacations
found the perfect spot and we want you to be one of the first
to experience first hand a great place to windsurf in Jamaica!
Schurton is managing Brian's Windsurfing, providing high performance
equipment and lessons for all levels.
He was born and raised in Jamaica; he learned to sail there.
He left Jamaica in 1981 to go to the United States and has been
racing and teaching windsurfing in Miami, Maui, Cabarette, and
Hood River (just to name a few places). For years he wondered
why Jamaica was not on the windsurfing circuit. He knew that
the wind was there and the beaches were there, but where were
Starting NOW ... the word is out ... THERE IS WIND IN JAMAICA!
And this winter is your chance to enjoy a beautiful spot
with lots of privacy in Jamaica!
easterly trade winds starts to blow in mid to late November
and continue until late spring. The wind is light in the morning
(perfect for beginners) and by late morning, early afternoon
the wind builds and blows side on shore averaging 15-25 knots
into the night. The bay is shallow so the shore break is minimal
and the water is flat until you get out to the reef. It is an
excellent place to kite surf too! The wind is best in July and
August. Check out the wind history for yourself. Wunderground
will give you the history for Montego Bay and Brian's Windsurfing
is located in Falmouth just 25 miles east of there. Our location
is very similar to Cabarette; DR except our location is very
private and wide open.
are a hand full of Jamaicans that windsurf and they too have
wondered why no one has set up to accommodate the windsurfing
enthusiasts. We met a wonderful Jamaica women who came to windsurf
while we were there in February 2000 working on this venture
(it blew everyday except for one day for over two weeks straight).
She has been to Antique, Barbados, Marguerite and such on windsurfing
vacations away from Jamaica. After several of these vacations
she decided that she would save her money and stay home (Jamaica)
because the conditions were far more consistent and better at
home and she wondered why others were not there enjoying the
sport as she and her significant other do (by the way, she only
owns a short board). She has been helping set up business in
Jamaica because she would like to see more windsurfers at the
beach. Another story worth telling is about a man who rented
Bounty Bay Villa several years ago who was/is an avid windsurfer.
He told the villa owner that he had sailed at many, many spots
on the island and he thought the beach, bay, and wind were Bounty
Bay Villa and Trelawny Beach Resort reside was the best spot
on the island!
